The best technique for traumatic experiences
EMDR

What is EMDR?

EMDR stands for "Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing: a specific technique for processing small or big trauma that may have threatened the sense of personal integrity.

 

What is a trauma

Trauma is any particularly stressful situation in which we have felt in danger, feared for our safety or that of loved ones, or felt a threat to our integrity. It can be for terrifying events (accidents, serious injuries, earthquakes), or less dangerous but still highly destabilizing events, or repeated situations (sexual abuse and violence, domestic violence, repeated abandonment).

 

During a traumatic experience there are no resources to fully process the emotions and sensations, which remain not integrated in the memory, causing a disintegration in the sense of identity.

 

How does EMDR work?

During EMDR, the traumatic event is remembered while an external stimulus helps to activate both hemispheres; in this way access is facilitated to all aspects of memory, including sensations, thoughts and emotions, which are reprocessed and with new associations, allowing to include that memory in one's history and integrate that into one's own personal identity.
